. first, what is the situation now? you've just briefed nancy pelosi. we've had word from her. where does it stand now, in terms of the rocket fire coming from garz and the return? >> good to be with you, andrea. well, just recently in the last hour and a half, rockets have struck tel aviv, terrorist rockets fired from gaza. >> did any of the rockets land in tel aviv? we were told by our correspondent they did not hit. what do you know about that? >> they landed in the tel aviv aarea. no injuries caused, thank god. this means 4.5 million israelis over half of the population of our country, is under rocket fire from gaza and israel's taking all means necessary to defend our citizens against the aggression. we've had 1,000 rockets fired at our citizens over the last month alone. israelis are in bomb shelters. prime minister netanyahu went to a bomb shelter in tel aviv to show his support. and our operations are continuing to persuade hamas and other terrorist organizations in gaza to cease firing rockets at our innocent civilians. >> is there a circumstance under which you would have ground
here a while. you've seen a lot of these meetings. most likely a photo op before the weekend. nancy pelosi was saying yesterday that she would welcome a number that both sides could start working toward and some republicans also say that. do you think there is any hope that maybe by just november, the end of november, there could be consensus on, okay. here's the top line where we're going to write the bill to. do you think that is possible? >> i don't want to minimize the difficulty ahead but i definitely think and get the impression from everything that both sides have said post election that there is some hope here in part. and greater hope for an agreement in the shorter term. there will be a lot of work that would have to be done next year to fill in the details but more of a chance of a deal now since you have the same cast of characters back at the table than you would have if mr. romney would have been elected. they know each other. they've talked about these issues before. they've already winoed down the issues. >> fascinating. if that becomes true. we'll talk more and get
better than to take the last budget the senate did, harry reid with his buddies, nancy pelosi, the 2008 free bailout, free stimulus budget and spent $2.5 trillion. nobody complained it didn't spend enough. if we adopted their budget right now, the 2008 budget, $1 trillion per year less than we are spenning right now. >> sean: we spend all of this time with an election and we are right back where we were. i don't know the republicans that voted for an increase -- here's my question to you. here's my question. do you think the leadership in the house is glg to hold the line on increasing taxes? >> well, gee... i know that we had the biggest conservative wave election in american history 2 years ago. two years later, we had a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, debt ceil being increase. we -- ceiling increase. we ended up cutting nothing, really. we really-- >>> you are saying no. >> two years of leverage for nothing. it's time to use the leverage of the house. it's one-half of one-third, but the most important half of the legislative body. the founders
katherine. nancy pelosi suggested maybe there is a bit of wiggle room in the $250,000 amount. maybe we could move it higher who is considered rich in this country. is that something though that you think john boehner is even interested in? >> i think it is probably something that he might consider. this is how negotiations work. congressional "fight club." they stake out their positions and sort of move closer together as they come together and actually meet and discuss this. there are couple options what they can do on the table. president signaled perhaps it doesn't have to be all about getting rates to clinton era levels. perhaps getting revenue from other places. i think that would be healthier, broader tax reform kind of deal made. i'm not sure whether they're all savvy enough to make that deal. i mean. martha: seems to me that is the major issue here. that is what john boehner was hinting at. he is suggesting that if you remove some of the loopholes that is a tax increase on the wealthy in this country. i feel like that is a message that has gotten across in perhaps a clear enough way.
cliff issue. we have new comments from nancy pelosi on the fiscal cliff today. let's listen to that. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy. we have seen a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for top earners? >> no. the president made it clear there are not enough -- what you described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> what do you think? does this mean a deal will not get done? >> i think there is desire on both sides to get a deal done. that doesn't mean we will see one. both sides are taken the election to mean that the american people want action. the president has taken it to mean the american people endorsed his so-called balanced approach to balancing the budget. and we saw spirited koopg with the leaders coming out after the meetening a now they mr. get down to the details where to make cuts and revenue increases and can do you do it by just closing loopholes, is that enough or do you have to talk about tax rates in particular think tax rating for the wealthy. that's is whe
until the last day of september, and house minority leader nancy pelosi said the goal is to get it done before christmas. we should be so lucky. >> we should be so lucky. holidays are coming up. it is a beautiful back grdrop b you look a little chilly. >> it is a little cold. >> brianna keilar, thank you. >>> what do fiscal cliff talks mean for your money? for your 401(k)? wall street investors might get nervous if talks aren't wrapped up quickly. i want to bring in time magazine's assistant managing editor, rana faruhar. you say some key people are worried next about what is coming up with stocks and bonds, why is that? >> a lot of the top investors in country see that the market has been down. there are major worries still about the fiscal cliff. i wish i could be as optimistic as some, but frankly i'm becoming a little bit worried. i think the issue of tax hikes for the rich in particular is going to be very politically contentious and there are worries we may not make that interviewer deadline and, in fact, if we go over it and stay over it for a few months, we could see the u.s. go
for talks to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. house minority leader nancy pelosi says no tax hike, no deal. >> close lop holes far too little money. and it could be they have said they want it to be revenue neutral. if it's going to bring in revenue. the president has clear that the higher income people have to pay their fair share. >> republicans argue now ♪ time to raise taxes on anyone if lawmakers don't reach a deal, hundreds of billions of dollars in tax increases and spending cuts go into effect january 1st. >> in new york, it apparently pays to be dead. you heard me. audit of the state's medicaid program from march of 2006, to february 2011, found that $1.9 million was coughed up for hundreds of people that were no longer alive. one person received more than $25,000 a year for seven years after he had died. that's a good business. in all, the audit found about $26.8 million in improper payments made by the program. people all over the country expressing their anger for obama care with their love of pizza. the group rebooting america organizing pappa johns appreciation day. that so
